Toward the end of my nursing college both of us had to work as interns at the local hospital.
Thankfully I was able to schedule my shifts while I was in the middle of the night plus this made it easier to get the kids back plus forth to college, handle appointments while I was in the day plus get some much needed rest while the kids were in class.
My husband could stay beach beach house with them while I was in the night plus it allowed us to avoid hiring a sitter too, then my shifts were fairly quiet because the patients were sleeping most of the time plus both of us just had to do routine rounds to check blood pressure plus supply medications, but it allowed myself and others time to do homework too plus I loved that. My only issue with that shift was the fact that the hospital policy with heating plus cooling was weird while I was in the night. They would lower the temperature on the floors to save money on energy. They figured that all the people were sleeping under sizzling blankets anyway so it was a perfect way to cut expenses, however this may have been tploy however it made those of us working genuinely uncomfortable. The people I was with and I weren’t allowed to use any sort of portable heating devices so I was forced to wear long underwear under my uniform. I would also walk around with a cup of hot Starbucks Latte or Sprite in my hands to keep those warm. I was ecstatic when I finished my internship plus I decided not to apply for a permanent position at that facility. I wanted a hospital that diagnosed its employees plus it’s patients.
